Assembly Republicans hold major fundraising edge over Democrats


MADISON (WKOW) -- Wisconsin state Assembly Republicans have outraised their Democratic counterparts by quite a bit this year and have more than three times as much cash on hand, according to campaign finance reports filed Monday.

The reports show the Republican Assembly Campaign Committee raised nearly $223,000 over the first six months of 2013, nearly double the $119,000 raised by Democrats over the same time.

However, Democrats spent four times as much money as Republicans in the first half of the year. Assembly Republicans report having $270,000 cash on hand compared with just $73,000 for Assembly Democrats.

The Committee to Elect a Republican Senate says it raised about $153,000 through June and had nearly $124,000 on hand. Senate Democrats had not released their mid-year report at the time this story was written.

The fundraising covers the period over which the Legislature was considering passage of the state budget.
